Although they were inspired by and taste very similar to vodka sodas, most spiked or hard seltzer brands contain no distilled spirits. Instead, the popular canned drinks are flavored malt beverages, which get their alcoholic kick from brewed cane sugar.
While no alcoholic beverage can be described as healthy, Bon & Viv boasts one of the lowest calorie contents of the leading hard seltzer brands. Each 12-ounce pour serves 90 calories, as well as 1 to 2 grams of carbs and 0 grams of sugar.

Being both a Spindrift fan and hard seltzer enthusiast, I knew I had to get my hands on a pack of the new spiked seltzer. I tried all four flavors of Spindrift Spiked Seltzer to see how it stacks up against a saturated hard seltzer market ahead of the summer.
There are four flavors of Spindrift Spiked Seltzer: pineapple, mango, lime, and half and half (half tea, half lemonade). Compared to popular hard seltzers, Spindrift has a slightly lower ABV than Truly, White Claw, and Bon & Viv, at just 4%. All four flavors are under 100 calories per can, too, lower than most competitors.
The biggest difference between Spindrift and competing seltzers is the 4% to 10% fruit juice in its hard seltzers. Despite the juice, the Spindrift seltzers somehow boast only zero to three grams of sugar per can and fewer carbohydrates than competitors.
Each can of Spindrift Spiked Seltzer has a thin design similar to White Claw and minimal branding. I paired my first seltzer, a half and half-inspired mix of black tea and lemonade, with a batch of hot wings hoping it would cool off my tongue.
I saved lime for last since it's often one of my least favorite flavors of seltzer. Yet, the second I cracked open the can, I could smell just how genuine the taste was compared to other lime-flavored food and drinks I've had. This was easily the most enjoyable flavor of the pack and reminded me of a quality, crisp sour ale.
After polishing off the cans from my taste test, I immediately looked up where I could find Spindrift Spiked Seltzer. It's one of the best alcoholic seltzers I've ever tried. The fresh hint of juice fused well with the bubbly effects of the seltzer, and the alcohol subtly blended into the beverage. It's a crisp, refreshing drink that would be perfectly at home in a beach cooler or at a summer cookout.
The low 4% ABV means it will likely take more than one drink for you to feel its effects. This could be a plus or a negative for some people, depending on the setting or occasion for drinking the seltzer. Still, it feels more refreshing than higher-alcohol competitors.
